The new cast members are Ian McShane (above; Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Jack The Giant Slayer, Snow White and the Huntsman), Rufus Sewell (below; Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love, American Horror Story, Camelot, FlashForward), Rebecca Ferguson (The BBC's The White Queen), Aksel Hennie (Headhunters) and John Hurt (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).
The film is set to begin production in May.
Based on Radical Studio's graphic novel Hercules: The Thracian Wars, the ensemble action film is a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist. The screenplay is by Ryan Condal and Evan Spiliotopoulos.
